Symposium: Art as Therapy with Children, Friday & Saturday, December 2-3, 2005
This symposium is held in honor of Edith Kramer, a practicing artist
and pioneer in the field of art therapy, whose extensive work with
children and adolescents has educated and inspired art therapists
throughout the world. In 1973, she came to New York University
and established the Masters Program in Art Therapy. Author of Art
Therapy in a Children's Community, Art as Therapy with Children, and
Childhood and Art Therapy, and numerous articles, Edith also received
her honorary doctorate from Norwich University. The American Art
Therapy Association awarded Edith Kramer with the designation of
"Honorary Life Member" as a mark of its highest esteem. Currently,
Edith is an adjunct professor at NYU, and continues to create and
exhibit her own artwork.
As the profession continues to evolve and grow, art therapists are faced
with changes in licensure in addition to other new challenges.
This symposium is an opportunity to reflect on art therapy's
beginnings, while also examining the current role of art therapy in
schools, hospitals, and communities, and its impact on children's
social, emotional, physical, and creative growth. The program will
begin with a tribute to Edith Kramer, followed by a full day event that
includes keynote speaker, Laurie Wilson, and a panel discussion
with Gladys Agell, David Henley, and Judith Rubin.
